Opening the door on social housing

Picture of the programme Soha published for the talk on the history of social housing at Oxford Open Doors

Amid the architectural and decorative pomp of Oxford Open Doors, which took place in early September, was a talk giving an insight into social housing today.

Soha presented a history of social housing in Oxford and gave attendees the chance to hear from Soha residents what life is like for them in 2017.

Soha’s Chief Executive Richard Peacock (pictured) said OOD had been a great opportunity to learn from the history of social housing and to think about the current challenges for providing homes that are affordable for all.

Stephen Dawson, organiser of Oxford Open Doors, a partnership of the Oxford Preservation Trust and Oxford University, said, “It was wonderful to have Soha Housing as part of Oxford Open Doors this year. It gave us all a unique opportunity to learn more about social housing in the City, from its history to its relevance today.” 

The collaboration to invite guests behind a rather different style of 'open door' to those normally revealed by the Oxford Open Doors scheme marked anniversaries for both Oxford Preservation Trust and Soha: OPT is 90 and Soha 20.
